Earlier this term, we tried out some hands-on cooperative STEM activities.
In this activity, the children had to work together in teams to lift and stack a paper cup without touching it. They could only pull on their string that was attached to a rubber band, looped around the cup.
Once the children mastered this, we made it a little more interesting! They had to lift and stack a cup that had water in it, without spilling it!
It was tricky and some of us did spill water on the desks. But it was easy to clean!
It was great to see how well they worked together and there was a lot of concentration shown on many faces.
